The problem with the current scheme is you have only 4Gb or so for
everything apart from /home - I don't have KDE / X installed, but I'm
fairly sure KDE on it's own would eat up 3-4Gb of space without too much
problem.  If you reinstalled I'd say assign 20Gb to /usr if you're going
to use KDE.

Another alternative might be to get rid of KDE and try something more
economic - like blackbox or wm - although if you're not too comfortable
with the shell those might not be the best for you.
